Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 5 June 2017 14 June 2017

This Meetup-based boardgames group continues to meet at the Marlow Donkey.

I was fairly wiped after UK Games Expo, so didn't expect to get anywhere with Ricochet Robots… but ended up winning three out of the available 17. At some point I may well make myself a set of this, redesigning it to remove the dependency on colour vision; I think four different robot shapes, and each marker with a robot shape and a number, might be the best bet.

I'd picked up Mafia de Cuba in an Expo trade and we gave this a go next - six is a bare minimum, but it seemed to work, and the presentation is lovely (especially the "diamonds").

We went on to Augustus, at which I came last again; I think I'm beginning to come up with a plausible strategy but I'll have to play it more to find out.

I was Expo-ed out so left at this point. We've moved the secondary meeting to third Monday rather than third Wednesday, so I should be getting to more of these.
